Autumn is the signal that summer is over and that means an abundance of leaves everywhere. As a benefit to the residents of Hanover Park, leaf collection in the month of November only will not require a yard waste sticker to be collected by Groot Industries. All you have to do is rake your leaves, put them into a recyclable yard waste bag, and set them at the curb on your normal trash pick-up day. The loose-leaf collection is for LEAVES ONLY. Any pile containing grass clippings or other yard material will NOT BE COLLECTED.
The Village would like to give a friendly reminder to all of our residents. Leaves cannot be blown or disposed of into Village streets or raked into the parkways. This debris could cause stormwater drains to clog if leaves are blocking the inlets. Piles of leaves can also freeze once temperatures drop and become a hazard for drivers.
All yard waste pick up is offered until November 26, 2022. After this date, yard waste pick up will not resume until spring. If you have any questions, please contact Groot Industries at 866.782.5161 or the Public Works Department at 630.823.5700.
